Would you have done it?

I work at an animal shelter, and the feral kitten I've been working with came up for euth, so I brought her home. I'm the ONLY person she doesn't attack and the only person who can handle her without bite gloves.

That was sweet. She feels comfortable with you. How is she with children? I probably would have done the same. I have a soft spot for animals

Yeah, I'd of done it also. My daughter brought my son a feral kitten about 2 years ago. He named him Rhoads (after Ozzy's guitarist, Randy Rhoads) and we still have him. Best cat ever!

Here he is with my Poodle. They are literally best freinds.

I wouldn't unless I was the only person she'd be coming in contact with. I would not bring an animal like that around my family.

I wouldn't want to start down that slippery slope. If I brought one home, I'd end up a crazy cat lady hoarders style.

LOL. You sound like me. I always say that left to my own devices, I'd end up on that animal hoarding show with dh going "I have no idea what happened. One week she had 3 dogs, the next week she had 50 dogs." LOL.

I'm really not sure how she is with young kids, but mine can't touch her. She hisses and swings. She's only 3 months old though, too young to face euth.

She's a sweet little thing, just needs some TLC and a home. I don't have any pets besides her, so she can be spoiled rotten.

She's a tiny 3mo kitten, and my kids are old enough to leave her alone. She's healthy, the vet checked her out. She's just terrified and needs some socialization. I wouldn't bring home an animal that could potentially harm my family.

I would have teied to find a friend who could take her. Dh is really allergic,to cats and the older he gets the worse it is. But its great you could take her.
